I A Practical
In Obtaining a Plan For a
Dy NATHAN JERNEGAN
I am it literary man that Is, If detec
tive stories may bo called literature.
Of courno my work Involves tho Inven
tive faculty, ami Invention involves
mental labor. I often thought thnt if I
could obtain real cases, such as the
sharp dctcctlvo works out, I would be
ablo to dispense with tho hardest part
of my work. I applied to tho police
for such cases, but all I got was the
tracking of a thief, a burglar or a
murderer by somo slip mode by the
perpetrator or somo ono else. There
wnri not enough In It to keep a render
In anxious expectation through several
hundred closely printed pngea.
Ono morning I hnd a real caso como
to mo without any Inquiry. I was sit
ting' in my study racking my brain for
material when a maid entered and told
me there was nn expressman at the
door with a package for mo. I -went
downstairs, receipted for it and, taking
it to my den, removed tho cover, open
ed tho box nnd saw somo Jowcls. He
moving a tray, thcro lay twenty or
thirty stones apparently of great value.
1 examined tho address on tho wrap
per, thinking thnt I had receipted for
something intended for another, but
there were my namo and address cor
rectly written In every particular.
What did it mean? Instead of spend
ing tho rest of tho morning trying to
Invent a dctcctlvo story, I was occu
pied In endeavoring to explain why
and from whom theso Jewels had been
sent me. I found tho Job more dllllcult
than producing a plot. At Inst I mado
up my mind that 1 must go about It
methodically, Just as a dctcctlvo begln
work In a crimlnnl case.
First I went to the express ofllco to
seo If I could learn there who sent the
package, but no ono knew anything
nbout it. The expressmen don't keep
records of tho senders of miscellaneous
packages. The next question was,
"Are tho Jewels real or imitation?"
This I might learn by submitting them
to nn expert. Hut until the mystery
was explained I did not care to have
any one but myself know that they
were In my possession. They might
be stolon property, and I had no mind
to go to Jail as tho thief. ITowcvcr. I
selected ono of a few smnll stones 1
found In tho tray nnd took it to a
dealer In gems for Inspection. lie
pronounced it genuine.
Ireturned to my study, throw myself
into an easy chair and began to
ponder. Tho Jewelry had been sent
mo by some ono whom 1 did not know,
for 1 had nover before setn tho bund
writing. There could have been no
mistake as to tho Intention. But what
wna Implf nf Mm intnnf Inn? '
Suddenly nn explanation Hashed on
my brain like tho flnmo of a gun at
night. Tho Jewels had been stolon, and
whoever had stolen them, fearing to
bo caught with them In his possession,
had sent them nway. After all, was
not thnt a good sclioino? Infernal
machines and jKiIsoncd food hnd been
sent by express nnd tho shipper was
never discovered. Tho thief would
doubtless open communication with
mo after the danger their possession
would bring him had pnssed.
Then there was another flnsh In my
brain, and another Idea was born. I
had n detective caso before me that 1
might work out myself and make It
the theme of a thrilling tale. IIoV
should I begin? Attempt to discover
tho owner of the gums? No; it woald
be better to my purposo that I should
make that a soparato problem. Should
I take the police Into my confidence?
Hy m nionns-at least till tho denoue
ment, when the guilty party had been
traced through tho labyrinth of elivuni
stnnco and tho hero detective, point
lug his linger at him. cries, "Thou art
the man!" My plan would bo to show
up tho Ingenuity or my hero In, con
trast with tho stupidity of tho police.
Should I advertise tho Jewels In such
a way that the thief would recognize
that they were tho property in -which
ho was interested? Not till ho had
time to feel assured that those hunting
tho Jowcls wore not on his track. Hut
this would Involve delay, and I was
anxious to pull tho thread of my Inves
tigations at once. So 1 advertised that
If tho party who had misdirected somo
property sent by express would ad
dress me at tho otllco of tho newspaper
containing tho ad. ho would learn some
thing to his advantage.
1 received no reply to this, but very
uoon a note camo through tho mall
Btatlng that certain property had been
addressed to mo by mlstako and If 1
would icturu it, asking no questions,
lalf tho value would bo deducted. It
was plain from this thnt my theory
was correct. Tho Jewels had been
stolen, and tho thief was Inclined to
bribe mo to return them to him with
out giving him away. To ease my con
science ho said tho matter rested on a
family affair that ho was not at liberty
I replied that It was true I hnd re
ceived by express a package thnt was
unexpected, and I pretended to be de
ceived by tho "family alTalr," writing
thut I was not In tho habit of poking
Into other persons' business and could
readily understand why It should lio!
kept from me. 1 was ready to accept I
tho terms offered. A reply ciuno to
this stating that If I wero disposed to
play fair nnd not attempt any "she-
nanlgim" 1 would bo paid ffi.000 lu
currency for tho Jewels, but If I at
tempted to load my correspondent Into
a trap 1 would full Into ono myself.
My plot was rapidly working to a
head, and I saw possibilities of ex
ponding It Into n novel that would send
my untnc up among tho grcnt writers
of detective stories. Hut I resolved tc
wait till the denouement before begin
ning, for experience hnd taught me
thnt the easiest way to write a detec
tive story Is to begin nt tho end instead
of the beginning.
After a lengthy correspondence It
wns arranged between mo nnd the
pnrty attempting to recover tho Jewels
that I should meet him in a house
which wns one of u row of stono fronts.
At a certain hour on a certain day I
was to ring tho bell of nn npnrtmcnt
on the third floor of tho building. If I
wore nlono It would bo known; If I
wore followed it would bo known. In
deed, unless I came by myself thero
would he no use of my coming nt nil.
Should I throw up tho ngreement 1
would be denounced as having stolon
I begnn to realize thnt I wns getting
into tho business of practical detective
story, writing with a vengeance. It wns
time I should take some precautions
against arrest for having ptolen prop
erty In my possession. Sly letters to
my. correspondent alone would Incrimi
nate mo. I determined to consult tho
police. Indeed, they were now neces
sary lo me. I must de-vise Bom- plnn
with (hem by which I should bo pro
tected and they should make the arrest
Hut, desiring to keep tho matter in my
own hands. I told them only that I was
tracking a criminal and wished them to
bo on hand when the trap was sprung
Tho Inspector was not well satisfied tc
tako up a matter under somo ono else's
lend, but when he found that I was ob
durate ho consented, and I was turned
over to a sergeant to make the ncces
Upon showing him the building where
I was to meet my party he noticed that
the roofs of all the houses in the block
were of the smiie height. Thinking
that if any ono should wish to gctawaj
he would mount to the roof nnd gc
down through the scuttlo of nnothei
house, the sergeant concluded to pul
men on the roofs to watch thnt mcnm
of cgrom This would obviate the
necessity of Keeplne; on my trail In the
street, which would be known to the
On tho day and hour appointed I re
paired with the jewels to the building
rang the bell of the third flat in tut
vestibule, the latch was drawn, nnd 1
went ujwttiirs A door stood njar, and
I i .if sod through it Into a room. A mar
idv imed to meet me. lie did not look
at all like a jallblid or, indeed, a crim
inal of any kind.
"Ah," he snld cordially. "I seo you
have brought the box. Termit mo tc
explain verbally that these jewels are
a legacy to my daughter. The will by
which she Inherited them was not prop
erly drawn, and In law, though not In
equity, they belong to another. To savf
them I captured them, though if what
I have done were known it would sul
joct me to a criminal prosecution. That
is the reason I sent them to you and
why I am willing to secure your sllcncr
by paying you so large an nmouut."
Hero was a subcompllcatlon for mj
work. I was very much interested
nnd listened eagerly to the man's
ntory of how bo had saved his daugh
ter's inheritance. I declined to accept
any loward for the return of the jew
els, but he declared that a bargain was
a bargain and wo must both stand bj
tho ono wo had made. Since the police
were behind mo 1 thought It perfectly
snfo to accept temporarily anything ho
lie counted out tlfty $100 bills,
which I roll'il In a wad and put In
my pocket. It had been agreed be
tweon me and mysupports that when
on my return I reached the street
door several policemen who had como

I therefore wild goodby to the man
who hnd saved his dnt'-'iter's fortune,
resolving that 1 would . .mipl to per
suade the poltc'cmcu below t6 let the
caso drop. Hut they refused to bo
persuaded and went up. They rang
the doorbell of the third tloor tint, but.
not locolvlng a response, were obliged
to force an entrance. This took some
time, as every door and window was
barred. Whou It was effected the flat
was found to bo empty. A door had
been cut into tho adjoining building,
through which any ono might hnve
passed out and away. At any rate, tho
man who had saved his daughter's
fortuno 1 nover saw again. Nor did
I went to tho station nnd turned tho
bills 1 had received over to tho ser

Inspection, and they wero pronounced
I nsked tho Inspector for a theory
as to tho meaning of tho whole busi
ness. After some thought ho said:
"There was a robbery of Jewels re
cently of which wo wero notified nnd
wero hot on the robber's tracks. That
the goms might not' be found on him
bo sent them away by express. How
ho camo to select you for tho recipient
I don't' know. When ho wanted the
Jewels ho opoued correspondence with
you, though It Is also possible that
some ono seeing your ad. did so. Tho
result you know. Whoever he Is, he
has tho Jowela and you hnvo $r.000

meet with such a caso you'd better re
port It to us at once."
I had written detectlvo stories based
on the stupidity of the police nnd the
Ingenuity of my hero. I now felt that
